LILO problems: Mandrake XP dual-boot with SCSI/IDE
 
I have a fairly complicated setup: I dualboot XP and Mandrake. XP is on its own drive, a SCSI drive. Mandrake (/boot, / and swap) is on a partition on an IDE drive. Everything was working fine until I recently clean-installed Mandrake 9.1: Now I cant boot into Mandrake at all.
When I select Mandrake from the Lilo menu, it shows me a screen that says
Uncompressed linux.... booting into kernel..
and then nothing happens.
I can boot from the Mandrake CD and mount my partitions, so I can modify my lilo.conf.
Help!!!!!
Venky.
Here is my lilo.conf:

Sounds like a 1024 boundary problem...
Anyway..should not be...

Have you ever thought of reinstalling?
